Palm vein biometrics is nowadays considered the best and foolproof biometric authentication methods. Because of near infrared technology, users need not to place their hands on the sensors in order to authenticate their identities. Instead, using palm vein biometrics, the scanners can capture the images of the patterns of the veins of the palms from a distance, hence improving the lives of the scanning devices and sensors.
Because the patterns of the veins of the palms are placed underneath the physical skins, palm vein biometrics authentication becomes easier and accurate even through aged or wet palms. Moreover, in the palm vein biometrics authentication process, it is practically impossible to forge and/or impersonate any other’s palm vein patterns.
